I finally got around to finishing a project. This is a ruger 10/22 that I have been working on for a month or so. The stock is curly maple and the tip is ebony. I also decided since there really isn’t a kick in a 22. , to go with a cocobolo “pad”. The contrasting colors make it really look cool. Hopefully it will shoot. The barrel is a green mountain bull barrel. The picture of the blank is what it looked like before, it is the top blank in the picture.

Goodness gracious, I love it. The shortie SS 10/22 is a favorite of mine. I think you’d have killed the look with a coco pad, you did well. Love the ebony tip, especially love the shaping. I’m very impressed, my friend.

The blank was taken to a neighbor who has a old duplicating machine, the inlet was about 90%. Although, it took me a long time with a dremel and a file to get it to fit. The finish is a wipe on urethane

Great looking stock! Where’s the mesquite? You’ve got to make one from mesquite to show off your wood products. LOL
